Song Lyrics[edit]

Daisy (2009)[edit]

  • Where's all my hope and my marriage license?
    • Vices
  • The champ goes down like a clown in the second round
    I wish we'd had a better goodbye
    • Bed
  • I stole bricks from the dam almost every day
    Now I'm drowning in the flood I made
    Explain myself to me on the other side
    I'm gonna want some answers when I die
    • At The Bottom
  • When the army had to hold the line
    Well you were nowhere near the front
    Before the kids could tell the dog "goodbye"
    Well, you were loading up your gun
    I wanna know I've left the great divide
    I wanna know what I've become
    You think that no one else is lonesome
    You think that you're the only one?
    • Gasoline
  • Well I wish that I was as good as you
    Caring and trusting
    And I wish that my condition was new
    But I'm old and rusting
    • You Stole
  • How darkly the dark hand met his end
    He was withered and bony; exposed for a phony
    But we heed the last words that he penned
    Haste to disgrace the traitor, do not wait till later
    • Sink
  • Where are all the seedlings we grew for violins?
    Down in Jersey lumber, still in prosthetic limbs
    Should've been a soldier, I could've fought and died
    There's no revolution, so I bought a bride
    • Bought a Bride
  • Well if we take all these things
    And we bury them fast
    And we pray that they turn into seeds
    To roots and then grass
    It'd be all right, it's all right
    It'd be easier that way
    Or if the sky opened up and started pouring rain
    Like He knew it was time to start things over again
    It'd be all right, it's all right
    It'd be easier that way
    • Daisy
  • Holding out for rest but on the seventh day
    I've created nothing and I'm wide awake
    • In a Jar
  • Why doesn't anyone I know sleep?
    Are they all just scared of their dreams?
    When they lay their heads down at night
    What are they haunted by?
    • Noro

The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me (2006)[edit]

  • Space cadet, pull out
    Space cadet
    Pull
    Out
    • Welcome to Bangkok
  • Be my serene
    Tell me you know what I mean
    You've set on me
    But you are not the sun
    • Not the Sun
  • When I disappear, do you fear for the sister I took?
    When I disappear, it is clear I am up to no good
    I am drearily bloodletting this bedwetting cosmonaut
    "Son, the last thing you'll realize you need is what you've already got."
    • Luca
  • Who do you carry the torch for, my young man?
    Do you believe in anything?
    Do you carry it around just to burn things down?
    • The Archer's Bows Have Broken
  • It's hard to be the better man
    When you forget you're trying.
    • Handcuffs
  • Do you miss the blend
    Of colors she left in your black and white fields?
    And do you feel condemned
    Just for being there?
    • Sowing Season (Yeah)
  • I used to be such a burning example
    I used to be so original
    I used to care, I was being cared for
    Made sure I showed it to those that I love
    I used to sleep without a single stir
    Cause I was about my father's work
    • Millstone
  • Well, Jesus Christ, I'm alone again
    So what did you do those three days you were dead?
    Because this problem's gonna last more than the weekend
    Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die
    But I'm a little bit scared of what comes after
    Do I get the gold chariot?
    Do I float through the ceiling?
    • Jesus Christ
  • Take me, take me, back to your bed
    I love you so much that it hurts my head
    Say "I don't mind you under my skin,"
    Oh, let the bad parts in, the bad parts in
    When we were made, we were set apart
    Life is a test and I get bad marks
    Now some Saint got the job of writing down my sins
    The storm is coming
    The storm is coming in
    • Degausser
  • Hey you beauty supreme; yeah, you were right about me
    But can I get myself out from underneath
    This guilt that will crush me?
    And in the choir, I saw our sad messiah,
    He was bored and tired of my laments,
    'said I died for you one time but never again.
    • Limosuine (MS Rebridge)
  • So the say
    They say in heaven there's no husbands and wives
    On the day
    That I show up they'll be completely out of their forgiveness supplies
    And I can't use the telephone
    To tell you that I'm dead and gone
    So you won't know
    • You Won't Know

Deja Entendu (2003)[edit]

  • I'm sinking like a stone in the sea
    I'm burning like a bridge for your body
    • Tautou
  • Die young and save yourself.
    • Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades
  • Every minute is a mile
    I've never felt so hollow
    I'm an old abandoned church with broken pews and empty aisles
    • I Will Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light
  • I hope this song starts a craze.
    The kind of song that ignites the airwaves.
    The kind of song that makes people glad
    to be where they are,
    with whoever they're there with
    This is war
    Every line is about who I don't want to write about anymore
    Hope you come down with something they can't diagnose, don't have the cure for.
    • "Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't"
  • I lie for only you
    And I lie well
    Halleluh
    • The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows
  • You are calm and reposed
    Let your beauty unfold
    Pale white, like the skin stretched over your bones
    Spring keeps you ever close
    You are second hand smoke.
    You are so fragile and thin.
    Standing trial for your sins.
    Holding onto yourself the best you can.
    You are the smell before rain.
    You are the blood in my veins.
    • The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot
  • And I've seen what happens to the wicked and proud
    When they decide to try to take on the throne for the crown
    • Jaws Theme Swimming
  • I will lie awake
    Lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
    Let you fall for every empty word I say.
    • Me vs. Maradonna vs. Elvis
  • Does anybody remember back when you were very young?
    Did you ever think that you would be this blessed?
    • Guernica
  • Am I correct to defend the fist that holds this pen?
    It's ink that lies
    The pen, the prose, the paper
    I live, I learn
    You will always take what I have earned
    And so aid my end while I believe I'm winning
    • Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have To Do is Die
  • Your tongue is a rudder.
    It steers the whole ship.
    Sends your words past your lips
    or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
    But the wrong words will strand you.
    Come off course while you sleep.
    Sweep your boat out to sea or dashed to bits on the reef.
    • Play Crack the Sky
  • They say that the captain stays fast with the ship
    Through still and storm
    • Play Crack the Sky

Your Favorite Weapon (2001)[edit]

  • Whatever poison's in this bottle will leave me broken sore and stiff.
    But it's the genie at the bottom who I'm sucking at. He owes me one last wish.
    So here's a present to let you know I still exist.
    I hope the next boy that you kiss has something terribly contagious on his lips.
    • Jude Law and a Semester Abroad
  • And if you ever said you miss me then don't say you never lied.
    • Jude Law and a Semester Abroad
  • When I'm talking to myself I'd always rather be talking to you.
    • Sudden Death in Carolina
  • But when I say let's keep in touch,
    I really mean I wish that you'd grow up.
    • Mix Tape
  • This is the first song for your mixtape.
    It's short just like your temper,
    but somewhat golden like the afternoons we used to spend before you got too cool.
    • Mix Tape
  • This is a lesson in procrastination.
    I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
    Every single second that I put it off
    Means another lonely night I got to race the clock.
    • Failure by Design
  • It's girls like you that make me think I'm better off
    at home on a Saturday night with all my doors locked up tight.

  • Nothing's absolutely definite til it's absolutely, definitely gone.
    • Logan to Government Center

    like how to deal with despair, or someone breaking your heart.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • Now I know I want to kill you like only a best friend could.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • So don't apologize. I hope you choke and die.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • They say you need to pray if you want to go to heaven
    but they don't tell you what to say when your whole life has gone to hell.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • So, is that what you call a getaway?
    Tell me what you got away with.
    Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.
    I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
    Have another drink and drive yourself home.
    I hope there's ice on all the roads.
    And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
    and again when your head goes through the windshield.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • And is that what you call tact?
    You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back.
    • Seventy Times 7
  • And tonight will go on forever while we
    walk around this town like we own the streets
    and stay awake through summer like we own the heat.
    • Soco Amaretto Lime
  • You're just jealous cause we're young and in love.
    • Soco Amaretto Lime
